The many different types of music will keep you entertained from start to finish and the food stalls will be offering a variety of tastes from around the world to buy.”
Community Mela Producer Gurvinder Sandher MBE DL said:
"It is our pleasure to once again be working with Maidstone Borough Council, Arts Council England and local community Maidstone Cultural Group to deliver the beloved Maidstone Community Mela in Mote Park.
“The Mela will once again boast an exciting programme of culturally diverse artists, the majority of whom are Kent based acts. There will also be an excellent off stage offering made up of partner agencies and food stalls offering flavours from all around the world!
“So please do come and support the Mela, an event which aims to bring communities together, celebrate all that unites us and to showcase the diversity of Maidstone and surrounding areas through music, food, and dance.”
